I had faith and confidence the suns would make a comeback. Most of the analysts were saying the suns were going to lose when the nuggets were up 2-0. I’m not certain who will win, but atleast we get to enjoy one hell of a series. Just like Boston and Philadelphia as well.
Nuggets don’t have an answer to suns offense and I’m very sure Monty Williams will put shamet on Murray because of the tough defense he put on him late in the game
Who woulda thunk? Didn’t think my Panthers were going to come back from a 3-1 deficit either. You never know.
Book and kd scoring like 90 a game…. This won’t work against Boston or warriors
As crazy as it may sound, are the Suns actually better without CP3?
